Another inexplicable promotion – reward for failure
The message: in Britain you can break the law or be colossally inefficient and yet still be promoted and/or rewarded.
Proof: former MP Jacqui Smith, who lost her Redditch seat after being involved in an expenses scandal has been appointed chair of University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Trust.
Following so many rewards for political, financial and commercial failure, a few covered on this site, the first four found are:Goldman Sachs Dave Hartnett London Midlands Rail Hector Sants .
Edgbaston MP Gisela Stuart is quoted in the Birmingham Post today as saying “It looks to me as if we are rewarding failure and I have raised this with the Health Secretary.”
